After 5 beautiful short films about romance covering love stories in schools to coffee shops, featuring a blind couple to a senior citizen couple – Y-Films, Yash Raj Films’ youth wing, short film anthology ‘Love Shots’ premieres ‘The Big Date’ today featuring Rhea Chakraborty [Mere Dad Ki Maruti, Sonali Cable, upcoming Dobaara], Saba Azad [Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge] & Mohit Marwah [Fugly]. Directed by Ankur Tewari, the short film is inspired by a true story in the US. It tells the story of a young talkative teenager and her autistic sister who’s speech impaired as last minute preparations for a date with the college heartthrob are in progress. A heartwarming tale that involved a lot of preparation and research on the part of the actors, writers and director so that they get the portrayal right. The short also features a beautiful love song as part of the original soundtrack composed & perfomed by Superbia sung by Shaan & Arpita Mukherjee.
Adds Mohit Marwah, who plays the hot date, Rahul, “I loved the idea and concept of the story. It wasn’t your regular conventional plot. The story featured an autistic character and leaves you with a sense of wonder. Always happy to be a part of such enthralling projects!”
Rhea Chakraborty, “It was a very unique and thrilling experience working on this. Ankur is a dream to work with.”
Singer-composer Shaan [Superbia] said, “Working on More Piya with the Y-Films gang for Love Shots has been one of the most exciting and satisfying musical experience for us as a band so far. We are sure it’s going to be one of the most promsing love songs released this year! Kudos to the entire team for pulling this brilliant concept off”
The music for Love Shots is exclusively available on Wynk music for a period of 3 days before its release. Mr. Srini Gopalan – Director – Consumer Business, Airtel, says, “Airtel has been a pioneer in the Indian telecom industry and is leading the 4G growth story in the country. Smartphones and fast mobile internet have transformed the way we consume content, with video emerging as the most popular form.
